Kansans 18 or older could be allowed to carry concealed weapons under House Bill 2326. The House approved the bill by a vote of 83-41. It will now go to the Senate.
The bill would amend a requirement in Kansas law that concealed carry permits be issued only to persons age 21 or older to authorize such permits to be issued to persons age 18 or older who also meet other requirements in continuing law.
The bill would also recognize license to carry a concealed firearm issued by other jurisdictions.
The Kansas State Rifle Association and Assistant Attorney General testified in favor of the bill, while Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America testified against.
